Pain in hips

cheerful1_gwJanuary 15, 2008

I noticed in the past week that when I walk, I have pain in the hip area. It hurts when I touch the area. Yesterday my left leg had shooting pain. I'm on HRT and Boniva, so I don't know if this is a side effect, or if I'm developing arthritis.

If I were betting, I would put my money on trochantric bursitis. That's what I had and it was really hard to get over it. I am much better now, but it has taken a long while of doing specific exercises. I couldn't afford physical therapy, so I went online and found the exercises on the web site for the University of Michigan School of Medicine.

Here is a link that might be useful: U of M exercises for trochantric bursitis
